Don't plant any trees near the house.or barn.......or near a septic system or drain field, near a wall or driveway or walkway.  Roots can cause problems with pipes, gas or water.

The Austrian Pine, has one main root (Tap root), that can extend up to 16' but the radius of roots can extend outwards more than 20' and is often quite jumbled in growth.
